Things I Like: Star Rod (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)

The Star Rod (from Kirby’s Adventure) has been a series favorite since the original. While not my favorite item, I really love it. Like the Kirby series, if you swing it, a star will come out. But it’s only a little strong. What’s much stronger is hitting your opponent with it. So much fun! AndContinue reading “Things I Like: Star Rod (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)”

Things I Like: Kongo Falls Stage (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)

Kongo Falls originated with Melee, but I never noticed it wasn’t ever in Brawl or Ultimate. Like all retro stages, it’s mostly the same, but with some graphical tweaks to make everything look nice and good in HD. It was based on a tiny section of Donkey Kong Country. Like most early stages, there’s notContinue reading “Things I Like: Kongo Falls Stage (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)”

Things I Like: Princess Peach (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)

Things I Like: Home-Run Bat (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)

The home-run-bat has been a staple of the series since the original game on N64. While it doesn’t look like much, this is far more powerful than your average baseball bat. One strong hit (usually) and the other player is gone, which makes the home-run bat ironically more powerful than a Final Smash. Such aContinue reading “Things I Like: Home-Run Bat (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)”

Things I Like: Great Bay Stage (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)

One of my favorite stages from Melee, the Great Bay stage returns in Ultimate. It’s based on the Great Bay Coast from The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. One of the stages that is the most true to the game it’s based on. There are not many hazards per se. You fight on the giantContinue reading “Things I Like: Great Bay Stage (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)”
